    The service was very good. The waitress was attentive and polite. The only criticism I have is the music. I am not a lover of added background noise so I am never keen on music playing in the background but I felt the music had an unnecessary upbeat tempo, not very relaxing

    We were visitors to the area and chose JD Youngs from a list we were given from where we stopping. From the moment we got there the staff were attentive and the place had a really nice vibe to it. The food was hot and well presented and we were served quickly even though it was really busy.

    Wow! Only picked this place as it had gluten free options marked on the menu (I’m coeliac), & was local to where we were staying on a short break. But wow!! The hotel was smart & the restaurant was out of this world with fairy lights, foliage, velvet seats & chandeliers. Very elegant & not in the least expected. Go hungry as the portions are huge & extremely good value for money. The gf options were amazing, staff were clued up & friendly & the Pornstar Panna Cotta was to die for!

    On arrival were initially sat at a table with a lot of overhanging artificial foliage above it which restricted the seating area for two of our party of four. They seem to have gone a bit over the top with the foliage decoration in the restaurant since the place was redecorated. However there was no problem being moved to a more suitable table once we pointed out the issue. Sugest a rethink of their table plan. Service was good and food was very good, but took quite a while to arrive, considering we only had one course and drinks

    Hi Derek, Thank you for your review, we are sorry to hear that you had some difficulty with our trees but are glad to know that we could find you somewhere more to your liking. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit and hope to see you again!

    Our first time at this place and we had a really good meal, generous portions, well served and helpful staff. Id have given it 5 stars if the music had t been a mite intrusive. Something calmer would have been nice. I mentioned it to a member of staff as we were leaving and they were apologetic.

    Sunday lunch,admittedly this was Easter Sunday, but the meal was SO SLOW. We arrived at 1:50 having booked for 2:00 and were seated straight away, ordered quite quickly but our meal was not served until 3:10, an hour and twenty minutes later. I’m afraid that the meal was not good either, a roast lunch, overall a bit cold, over cooked roast potatoes dried out & tasteless, under cooked broccoli, almost raw. The only hot part was the gravy. Sorry team, I know it was a busy bank holiday but a poorly prepared meal served soooo late. Disappointing.

    We booked Sunday roast and upon arrival were very impressed with the restaurant & wonderful friendly staff, we ordered our drinks which were delivered very promptly by a lovely waitress & soon ordered our meals, although we had quite a long wait (almost an hour) we were given a complimentary drink while waiting & when we got our meals, roast pork & roast lamb , it was definitely worth the wait, superb amount of food absolutely cooked to perfection, definitely going back when next in the area wonderful food, staff & atmosphere 👏

    Really great evening with great service and lovely staff. The food portions are huge, I’d recommend ordering a starter for a main course, even if your hungry! They like to bulk the portions out with very average bread. Overall a really lovely evening but some of the details that make all the difference haven’t been thought through.
